So, then, what's the difference between inflation, and "nasty inflation", and hyperinflation?  Strikes me as a lot of hair/splitting/back pedaling.

People on fixed incomes (like people with money in a mattress) do run the risk of having their buying power diminish due to inflation. Isn't zero inflation basically an unrealistic economic goal, however?

Most people understand that periodic increases in earnings are necessary to maintain a certain standard of living. That's why there's a push on for raising minimum wage, for example.

when trying to get to what real inflation looks like i prefer (or i'd like) some sort of standard, but that gets changed from time to time

or you might ask all the retirees you know (people on a fixed income how they're doing or about how far their money is going since they've retired)

it's one of the questions i ask

if inflation historically averages 3-4% and your parents have CDs and savings that aren't making that then their purchasing power is going backwards

there's a trend of this happening and it looks like this



simplified example:

generally if growth is three per cent and you increase the money supply by three percent the dollar could at least hold it's value/purchasing power

when you increase the supply too much, you'll see a downward trend

the boomers are retiring out at a increasing rate and we'll see inflation's effects more and more on these folks

krugman's conflicted thinking has been brought to light by some (repeatedly)

some of those folks calling for the dollar to crash are taking into consideration that it may lose reserve currency status (like converting oil bourse trading in other currencies)

here's a handy little inflation calc that you can play with

this one is easy...

our gubmint initiates aggressive web/cyber attacks on other gubmints/groups and when someone responds/hits back and causes an issue it will be blown way the f out of proportion and bam!
it'll all be justified (a lot of the spying and data mining), the censoring and complete monitoring (or as best they can) of the web activity here
but of course it's all for our safety, right?

A few calls I'd like to make....

Government(s) will demand broad sweeping powers and enable their corporatist partners.

The evil central bankers/IMF will push for a one (single) world currency, which they'll issue/control.

And encourage a cashless society.

We might see some short term deflation, but due to a massively expanding money supply (government endorsed counterfeiting) we'll end with some nasty inflation.

Government will tax and censor the internet.

You'll have to get a government license too access the web too.

Expect more war(s), especially for resources, wealth in the ground, of course they'll be in the name of protection/terrorism.

Basic goods and services will get much more expensive. (water will be a biggie, food and energy are going to be up there too)

People will revolt, protest and push back, and they'll be labeled. (Travel & movements will be monitored and restricted - Police State)

Your government will direct your law enforcement and military to squash any uprising.

I'll be labeled a cynic by those who haven't studied history.

If you're reading this, the Buffalo Bills will never win a Super Bowl (in your lifetime.)

And finally, when people are sick up and fed with entropy and desolation, the human race will rise from the ashes and hopefully understand that peace and prosperity through non-aggression is the only way to truly live.

Regards

(this is a fairly quick and spontaneous list and I'm sure I've left out a few items, so feel free to add and discuss)
